Note: Robinson calls this a "fantastic wall map." It is quite striking visually, with a brilliant yellow setting sun and the word "Sunset" overprinted on tract map of the area around present day Wilshire Boulevard. The copy illustrated by Robinson is slightly different from this copy: the tract map has a light blue color (here white) and the printing is in light gold/brown color (here black). Shows block and lot numbers and dimensions, railroad, etc.
